Cortlan Wickliff, 22, is graduating from Harvard Law School on May 30, 2013. When he crosses the stage and receives his Juris Doctorate, Wickliff will be the youngest African-American to ever join the elusive law school alumni club.

Wickliff of Texas was the youngest African-American engineer in the United States when he finished a Bachelor’s of Science in Bioengineering at 19.

The Rice University alum’s research includes developing a heart-and-respiration-rate monitor for babies as well transforming pacemakers to monitor vital signs. Wickliff’s interest in medicine and engineering developed after his father died of a heart attack. He has devoted his energy to creating cost-effective medical advancements that can save lives.

Wickliff, who’s a member of the Root’s Young Futurists list, will pursue a Ph.D. in engineering at Texas A&M University.  Congratulations Cortlan Wickliff.  Keep up the good work.
